Schrödinger, a technology leader specializing in software solutions for life science research and development, is searching for an Applications Scientist for our European team. Our Applications Scientists use Schrödinger's computational chemistry software to address challenging problems in pharmaceutical research; they also serve as consultants to our customers in their applications of modeling tools. Responsibilities include: providing scientific expertise for our software to potential and existing customers, including demonstrating optimal use of Schrödinger’s Life Sciences Suite through demos; training and modeling services; engaging in internal and external research projects for publication; and giving presentations at scientific conferences.
Applications Scientists also gain familiarity with our entire suite of structure-based and ligand-based software, including packages for docking, molecular simulations, free energy calculations, homology modeling, pharmacophore modeling, cheminformatics, and quantum mechanics. A strong background in molecular modeling and computational chemistry with application to biological problems is highly desired. Exceptional communication skills, an outgoing personality, and a willingness to travel are required. Experience working on drug discovery projects is desirable.
- Ph.D. in computational chemistry or biophysics, or a related field, plus experience with pharmaceutical applications of molecular modeling software tools
- A broad knowledge of molecular modeling theory and applications
- Post-doctoral research and/or relevant experience in the commercial sector
- Excellent interpersonal, communication, and organizational skills
- Strong problem-solving abilities
